Epic Hero the 15/8 favourite for Sandown Fortune Stakes

It is EPIC HERO at the head of the market for this one at 15/8 odds* (betting odds taken from Ladbrokes at 11:53 GMT on Tuesday, 15th September 2020). By all accounts, he should be a big player in this field.

The way that he destroyed a field at Meydan in a 1m trip in February was hugely impressive. He was head and shoulders above the field on the day. Epic Hero wasn’t disgraced at all on a step up to Group 3 action at York last month either.

He took second place at York in that last run, so coming back down in class for this one, Epic Hero looks to have the goods to put together a very bold effort.



Montatham a big player in the Fortune Stakes

The highly appealing MONTHATHAM cannot be overlooked for this challenge at all. He is just progressing so well and he looks better and better with every run.

Heading into Wednesday’s action at Sandown, Monthaham is sitting on a hattrick.

The Willie Haggas-trained gelding has won three of his last four starts. The most recent of those happened at the 1m distance at York just last month.

He is rapidly on the up and probably isn’t going to look out of place taking on Listed company now. After three handicap scores, he’s a major player.

The one miss that he had in his last four runs, was when he claimed runner-up spot at the Royal Hunt Cup.

Montatham can’t be overlooked at 9/4* (betting odds taken from Ladbrokes at 11:53 GMT on Tuesday, 15th September 2020).

Top-rated Zaaki to put things together?

With some lowered sights, ZAAKI could feature well and he is at 9/2 in Sandown Fortune Stakes odds currently* (betting odds taken from Ladbrokes at 11:53 GMT on Tuesday, 15th September 2020).

He returned to action with a place finish in a Group 3 run at Newbury.

The five year old then followed up with decent efforts in the Summer Mile Stakes (Group 2) and then the Rose of Lancaster Stakes (Group 3).

So because of Zaaki having handled himself well in some good company, he seriously has to be considered for the shortlist.

Can Motakhayyel bounce back?

MOTAKHAYYEL didn’t get the run that he wanted last time out, as he was the beaten favourite, labouring home second from last at Salford in the Group 3 Sovereign Stakes.

He is a good enough horse to shake that off and bounce back though.

That misfire saw him miss a chance at a hattrick after impressively winning the Buckingham Palace Handicap and then the Bunbury Cup.

Motakhayyel is usually a reliable sort and is well worth considering to rapidly put that last run behind him from a 10/1 quote* (betting odds taken from Ladbrokes at 11:53 GMT on Tuesday, 15th September 2020).

The rest of the runners

BLESS HIM has looked a little shot of quality to compete up at the Listed and Group levels this season. He hasn’t managed to put things together completely.

One thing is for certain, he hasn’t found the form that saw him win back to back fixtures to sign off with last season.

LAVENDER’S BLUE is one that needs some considerations in this field. She was last out at course and distance and was really in the frame for a win in the Atalanta Stakes, ending up in third after a great big. By no means is she to be totally counted out of this on the day.

POSTED was behind LAVENDER’S BLUE at the Atalanta Stakes over course and distance in her last run. That was immediately after putting in a career-best of a second-place finish in Listed action at Haydock. The winning touch doesn’t appear to be there, not at this level.

Predictions & Tips for Sandown Fortune Stakes Racing Odds

What a great race this is likely to be. There are some serious claims here among the front runners.

We will start with our top pick MONTATHAM at 9/4 who is just progressing so well* (betting odds taken from Ladbrokes at 11:53 GMT on Tuesday, 15th September 2020).. He looks good enough to handle this Listed run the way that he is going.

LAVENDER’S BLUE piques some big interest at 11/2 odds after her recent bold course and distance effort* (betting odds taken from Ladbrokes at 11:53 GMT on Tuesday, 15th September 2020). She’s a great filly and will be game enough to throw down in this one.

The final pick will be MOTAKHAYYEL who will fancy it a lot better than that poor race last time out. He was hot prior to that and if he runs his race on the day, given what he has produced already this season, he could be a major threat.
